InDesign Imports Word Doc With Headers

I have a Word doc with multiple section breaks (next page). Each section has a unique header. Can InDesign import the entire doc with the headers as text so I can format these headers into chapter titles?

Hi @Chris Panny:

 

InDesign doesn't import the running heads from Word. But you move them into the body of the document in Word first, and then import the file. Create a style for the titles and assign it to this text.
